[Multiple miliary osteomas of the face].Hautarzt. 2002 Jan; 53(1):37-41.H
Osteoma cutis is a single or multiple ectope calcification with development of bony structures in the skin. We distinguish between primary and secondary ossification. Multiple miliary osteoma in the face has mostly been described secondary to preexisting acne vulgaris. We present a 62-year-old woman who developed multiple miliary osteoma in the face together with repeated doses of estrogen and discuss pathogenesis and therapeutic possibilities.
